The cast of Sunshine on Leith

Sunshine on Leith, the musical based on the works of The Proclaimers, is returning to UK stages this month with a new tour, which opens at the West Yorkshire Playhouse.

The piece follows two best friends and servicemen who return from war to be confronted by civilian life. We asked cast member Euan Bennet to give us a look at the rehearsal room as the show prepares to open for previews.
